Dr. Salem Samra took EXCELLENT care of my daughter who needed minor surgery. He was extremely patient and kind and explained everything he would do during the procedure. We are very pleased with the results and I would highly recommend this practice. We actually live over an hour away, but due to high recommendations from others whom have gone here, we trusted their opinion and decided to come to Dr. Samra. (his nursing assistant was pretty amazing with my young daughter as well).

Dr. Sal Samra reattached the tendon on my right thumb. Not only did he do a great job, his staff in Holmdel and at the Surgery Center were Awesome. They were as helpful and professional as a staff could be. They are a credit to how an office should run.

Dr. Salem Samra was a Godsend at the time I arrived.  The professional care I received in an emergency situation really helped me turn a bad time into a positive outcome. Samantha was also so helpful in keeping me calm and reassuring me the entire time when I arrived. I am thankful for the care I received from the whole practice and would recommend to any of my friends. Thank you.

I had Basal Cell Carcinoma on the wing of my nose that needed Mohs surgery and a flap that was not to my liking. I decided I needed plastic surgery to make me want to look into a mirror again. I was recommended to the Samra group and when I called for an appointment and explained my problem, I got this amazing person who was so caring and understanding that I knew I was in good hands. Her name was Samantha and the assistant to the doctor that was going to help me. Meeting Dr. Samra was a wonderful experience I felt very comfortable with him, he was caring and understanding and explained what he was going to do that would make me happy again and I am. Thank you Dr. Salem. *
